Keller Executive Search is a leading headhunting and recruitment firm servicing Stockholm and Gothenburg. Our headhunters search specialize in locating the best executives. Having the right team in place at top management levels has a marked benefit for businesses. At Keller Sweden, it is our goal to help clients search for and screen the top talents for senior management and C-level roles. We are tasked with finding the best candidates on the market in Sweden and the rest of the world.
Keller consultants work closely with the head of human resources in order to establish exactly what kind of talent the business needs. During our search, we do not focus solely on a candidate’s management experience. We also focus on traits that make a manager adaptable and effective, including leadership and personality skills and cultural fit.
In the past, Sweden was largely dependent on agriculture. In recent years, however, other industries have grown: forestry, manufacturing, chemical goods, precision equipment, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications, sales, and motor vehicles are among these. There is also a large focus on the industrial and service sectors.
Our executive search services primarily focus on these industries. That being said, we are also well-equipped to assist organizations in the system development, engineering, and healthcare sectors find the right talent to lead their workforce.
We are able to adapt our services to fit our client’s needs. While we do not offer a consulting process, we provide recruitment that relies heavily on the careful assessment of candidates before any are presented to clients. Our consultants are also required to maintain contact throughout the process with any partner and client, whether locally in Stockholm or at a global level.
Part of our ongoing process involves maintaining both local networks in Stockholm, Sweden and those at a global level. Through these networks, we have access to a large group of potential recruits as well as the best tech and more.
When it comes to recruitment at a more specialized level, we have access to consulting partners who can assist, if needed, in Sweden or beyond.
General recruitment is not the same as C-level recruitment. One caters to job seekers en masse, while the other focuses solely on finding a top-level manager for a specialized position. This also means that the process is longer and involves more resources and manpower to complete than general recruitment.
In small- and medium-sized businesses, the HR department may not be capable to perform executive searches. Keller Sweden has the resources and manpower to complete executive-level and C-level recruitment for businesses of all sizes.

The first step of our executive search process is establishing precisely what a client is looking for in Sweden in terms of the candidate’s skills and experiences, among other factors. Our consultants also work to understand the management style and culture in the client’s workplace. This allows us to better assess which talent would integrate well into the company should they get hired by the client.
Once all hiring requirements have been established, our consultants will begin searching for candidates through traditional and non-traditional channels. Each prospect found will be thoroughly evaluated and screened to determine whether it will be a great fit for our client’s organization. Those who do not fit the bill are then removed from the talent pool.
When we have created a pool of candidates, we will present the talents to the client who can then conduct their own interviews and evaluations to determine who they want to join their leadership team.
